1842 LIBERTY SEATED 25C, NO MOTTO MS65
LARGE DATE. TIED WITH ONE OTHER COIN FOR HIGHEST GRADED. PITTMAN.
1842 saw the establishment of the Wadsworth Atheneum of Art in Hartford, Connecticut. The museum, which would officially open in 1844, was the first public art museum in the country. The Wadsworth Atheneum continues to be the oldest continually operating public art museum in the US. Could this 1842 quarter have been used in the construction of this historic museum?
